Run by Mad Science of Austin & San Antonio

Tagged in: Science & Tech, Sports, Summer Camps, Academics

Mad Science invites you to join us this summer in our Mad Science robot world in our exciting Camp Number 7. Learn about the uses of robots in the world. Spend time playing with our super cool red-hot robots. Use your skills to build your very own working robot to take home to “live” with you. Following are some topics you will explore during this fun five-day camp. These are only a sample of some of the activities that you will be doing each day. The topics will not necessarily follow this order. However, each of these topics will be included at some point in the camp.

Robot Concepts - Roll your way into robot science. Experiment with different robot designs, as you learn what makes a robot work. Invent your own robot designs using recycled materials.

Robot Basics - Discover the world of robots as we investigate the differences between humans and their robotic counterparts. What makes a robot work will be explored during hands-on activities and discussions.

Robot Building - Each day some time will be spent perfecting a real working robot that we will finish and take home on Friday. We will be using our fine motor skills and we require that campers be entering the second grade so they do not become frustrated with construction.

Red Hot Robots - Hands-on activities will include fun time with our robots. We will play games and experiment with super cool robots such as a soccer robot, a line tracker, a hyper peppy, and a robotic arm.

Robotic Science - Campers will learn how robots use infrared and other sensors to discover the environment they are placed in. Working in groups we will explore how robots work and how they can make our lives easier.

The Red Hot Robot camp fee does include a $30.00 supply fee for the robot that you will build and take home.
